Hunger Games Recast: Mandeep Dhillon as Katniss Everdeen
asked: "I am really confused by people who think that bronze hair is blonde hair. Like. Bronze is a medium to dark slightly reddish brown, yes? I always pictured Finnick as a lot like Jesse Williams, who has, surprise surprise, golden skin, green eyes and dark brown hair."
Yeah! Personally, I picture Finnick looking like Javier Núñez Florián who also fits the description of Finnick, with the exception of them having different color eyes.
asked: "Y'know, I was doing some research for my novel (where the two main heroes are biracial), and I learnt something interesting. It's possible for a biracial person with one black parent and one blond parent (like the Everdeen kids) to have really curly hair (like, Type 4 hair curly) but have it be blond. So I headcanon Prim as having that kind of hair."
asked: "To the racist ass formally known as cumber-kitty: Why would it make an ounce of sense to have a book/movie series about a dystopian future with ONLY WHITE PEOPLE IN IT? I'm fairly certain there aren't only white people in this world. Also, the entire book is a metaphor for oppression in modern society, which is often targeted towards people of color. And you realize that fictional characters in film don't have to match their description in books? I know, take your time."
asked: "I don't understand how you believe Katniss is anything but Caucasian when her own mother and sister are described as blonde, pale skinned with blue eyes. I'd like more PoC in movies/books too, but these claims don't really make sense."
Because biracial people exist.
asked: "I'll ignore the race-bending of Katniss....but Finnick? The boy who is described as blond and with sea-green eyes? It doesn't really make sense. I suppose if you want to believe it you can...but it doesn't alter the fact that the author intended him to be Caucasian."
Finnick was described as having golden skin and bronze hair…. also “Caucasian” is a shitty word when used to mean “white.”
